The free and robust statistical package R has been decades in the making and is worth learning for serious statistical operations, such as conducting new medical data analysis. This course teaches you everything you need to know to get started with R, from installing R to running R from the command line. You'll grasp how to invoke basic functions and view the documentation on those. You'll create variables in R and explore various reserved words and the = and <- operators. You'll then perform basic arithmetic operations on variables, invoke built-in functions, and work with various atomic data types, such as character, integer, double, logical, complex, real, and raw. By the end of this course, you'll have the skills you need to get working with R.
